Pies in the style of New York pizza. While they do plenty of take out and delivery business, there's also a sit-down component, including beer and wine. All whole pizzas are 18 inches; most are available by the slice. The meat lovers and the veggie are both good. Free mini-mall parking.
New York PIzza my eye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – I ate at this joint after reading the reviews in CitySearch.
Being born & raised in New York City, I know a little something about New York Pizza. I decided to go there after my LA spot Albano's closed. This pizza could not even hold a candle to NYC pizza. I asked for extra sauce on the pizza and these knuckleheads poured it on top...I mean come on....who is making these pizzas?
The crust was dry, flavorless, no chew to it at all which is the best part of a New York slice, a nice thin chewy crust. I will never eat there again and if I'm ever in the mood for real New York pizza.....I'll just buy me a ticket and fly back home. For those of you who claim this pizza is authentic, you must have not have any taste buds or appreciate the true texture of a New York slice. Where in the hell have you been eating Sbarro? What added insult to injury is that 1 large Pepperoni & 3 cokes was 28.00. Are you friggin kidding me???
Next time you buy a ticket back 'home' be sure and make it a one-way, thanks for visiting L.A., and try not to return any time soon...
You MUST BE KIDDING ME! – Well, after reading the reviews here, I decided to give Vito's Pizza a try. I actually wanted a Calzone but Vito's oven was too full and they couldn't make me a Calzone. I guess that would have taken some space away that Vito needed for it's $28.00 XL (18 inch) pizza. I am sorry but the pizza was very average for $28. I usually spend a lot of money on food in places such as Katana on Sunset, Vice Roy, (Now the) BLT on Sunset and many other expensive restaurants so the problem is not the $28 for a pizza but the quality of the pizza that you get for the money. "you get what you pay for" but not in this place. The pizza is average and I would probably go to the other little places to get good pizza.
A GEM! – One of my FAVORITE restaurants in LA, if not my ultimate favorite. Not only is the food INCREDIBLE, the people that work there are AMAZING. Vito (THE Vito from Vito's Pizza) is there most nights behind the counter w/ a huge smile. This is how food is supposed to be eaten. Cooked fresh daily. The pizza is to die for, and don't even get me started on the pasta dishes. The pesto penne and the baked ziti...>WOW!
You have to try this. Eat it. Love it.
my favorite in LA so far – good pizza. pasta dishes are good also and I know they make a variety of good meal's. I am a transplant from NJ (which I hear vito is also) I I know my fair share of good pizza and italian joints and VITO can definitely hang with them if he was out east.
i love the bread also
Yummy – Vito's provides NY classic pizza. The pizza is taste very good. Thin crust with different kind of toppings.
Goes Toe to Toe with the Best Pizzas in NY – This place does pizza right. As much as I enjoy a California style pizza with a bunch of odd toppings, I still need to have a slice that reminds me of a good, New York style pizza and I always find what I'm looking for at Vito's. An excellent crust combined with fresh toppings are cooked to absolute perfection. For first timers, I'd recommend the Terra Firma as your introductory slice. If you're a mushroom fan, the wild mushroom pizza is the one to get (whole pie only). For those that like a little kick of heat on their pizza, have a slice of the Garibaldi - beef, tomato, and jalapenos. My normal order is two slices - a sausage/mushroom and either a veggie or white pie slice (a 4 cheese pizza). Although I miss the days when Vito's was walking distance from my house in East Hollywood, he has definitely upped his pizza quality which translates to great news for pizza fans and bad news for all other pizza joints within 10 miles of Vito.
Too Pricey for me... – i consider myself a successful woman. i live in west hollywood in a 1 bedroom, pay my own rent, my car etc... anyways my point is the pizza was good but the price was insane. i had a lg pie, a salad and 2 cokes delivered. 38 dollars...wow. i was floored... and a delivery charge to boot. too pricey for me and i feel for the neighborhood. last i checked this isn't beverly hills...its west hollywood, single people living in apartments, not families living in multi million dollar houses... good luck. but i can't afford it 3 times a month, i'll stick with another place.
Molto Bene – Oh thank god someone recommended Vito's. I am a recent transplant from NYC/NJ and everything I have tried in Los Angeles called pizza has been some of the worst food I've eaten in a long time. Vito's is not only passable, even if it were in NYC or NJ, this is really good pizza and well prepared italian food.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised since Vito is also a transplant from NJ. :o)
NEVER AGAIN $35 for one pizza! – I thought I posted this last week but somehow it disappeared. I think someone must have had it deleted...but here goes again:
I just read another review about an $18 pizza...how about a $35 dollar pizza. Yes, that's right THIRTY FIVE. I called to see what sizes they had, I was told 18". I asked about what the price range was, they said it starts around $17 and goes up. My boyfriend is in that area, so i call him and we debate about toppings and settle on just veggies. I call and order it, tomatoes, onions, and mushrooms. I call my boyfriend back and he asks for their number so he call and have them add artichokes. I tell him I am very hungry..hurry home. He gets here and then I ask what it cost him so I can chip in. $35!!!!!!! He says he decided to just get the veggie pizza, which by the way folks, only has spinach, broccoli, tomatoes and feta. He added artichokes since I like them and sauce since it didn't have any already. They charge him $3.50 for the artichokes and another $2.50 for the sauce totally $35. I called Vito's back up livid. I asked how did it get this much. He gave me the price breakdown and then said that's just their prices. I said I could go to fine dinning and get that price, he said nothing. Now, I get my boyfriend should not have paid for that but he just knew I was hungry and assumed since I called up there asking about their pizzas and prices, that I already knew. I will NEVER return and I will warn my friends as well!
Finally, a great slice! – I was skeptical when a friend told me that a new pizza place had relocated from Silverlake to West Hollywood. I stopped into vito's to try a couple different slices. The ricotta and spinach was amazing, sweet and savory all at once. I also had a slice with sausage and veggies and it was just what I needed. The crust was just the right consistency that I look for, thin, but strong enough to hold together. There isn't much seating, so you might want to plan on take out or delivery. It may seem a little pricey for a slice, but I would pay twice this much for quality this high. Don't tell Vito!
